1000W Fiber Laser Cutting Machine

Cutting thickness

Cutting thickness is a key parameter that determines which materials can be cut and processed efficiently. For cutting machines, the range of application is often limited by the thickness of the material. In general, the cutting thickness is suitable for thin to medium-thick materials, which usually means that the material is between a few millimeters and about 6 mm thick.

It is in this thickness range that cutting equipment is able to deliver optimum performance and efficiency. Thinner materials tend to be easier to cut because they don't require much force or energy to penetrate.


Power Consumption Level

The degree of power consumption of a 1000w laser cutter depends largely on its efficiency and length of use. Theoretically, if a laser cutter runs continuously at maximum power for an hour, it will consume 1000 watt-hours (Wh) of electricity, or 1 kWh. However, in practice, the power consumption of a laser cutting machine may be affected by a variety of factors, such as the design of the equipment, the manufacturing process, the type of material, the cutting speed and so on.

In summary, the 2000w fiber optic cutting machine is an excellent choice for cutting thick plates, stainless steel, and complex patterns and curves.

2500W Fiber Laser Cutting Machine

Cutting Thickness

The thickness range of steel plates that can be cut by 2500W fiber laser cutting machine may vary depending on the specific brand, quality, application environment, speed and other factors. Generally speaking, the maximum thickness of carbon steel plate that can be cut by 2500W fiber laser cutting machine is about 12mm, while the maximum thickness of stainless steel plate is about 10mm. The above data is for reference only, if you need to know the cutting thickness of specific brands or models of 2500W fiber laser cutting machine, it is recommended to consult the technical specifications of the relevant equipment or equipment suppliers.

Power consumption

The 2500W fiber laser cutting machine consumes more power than the lower power models. This is due to the fact that higher power machines require more power to drive the laser generator, cooling system and other related components during operation. As the laser power increases, the efficiency and cutting ability of the machine improves, but this is also accompanied by higher energy consumption.

Specifically, high power laser cutting machines require more energy to generate and maintain a high power laser beam during the cutting process, which results in higher power consumption. In addition, high power equipment usually requires a more powerful cooling system to ensure stable operation of the equipment, which also increases energy consumption.

It is important to note that although high power devices consume more energy, they offer significant advantages in terms of efficiency, cut quality and speed.

Selection considerations

Material Thickness

When selecting a CNC machine, it is critical to consider material thickness. This is because different machines have different limits on the thickness of the material they can process. For thinner materials, you can choose a relatively lightweight machine, while for thicker materials, you will need to choose a heavy-duty machine that can withstand more pressure and shear. For example, if you regularly work with metal materials that are more than 10 millimeters thick, then you need to choose a machine with a powerful spindle and cutting capacity. It's also important to consider the rigidity and stability of the machine to ensure that no deformation or vibration occurs during the machining process.

Power Consumption

Power consumption is a factor that needs to be carefully considered when choosing a CNC machine. Power consumption not only affects the running cost of the machine, but also relates to the machine's energy efficiency and environmental friendliness. Generally speaking, machines with higher power offer more efficient cutting capabilities, but they also consume more electricity. Therefore, when selecting a machine tool, the relationship between power consumption and performance needs to be balanced according to actual machining needs and budget. In addition, consider choosing machines with energy-saving technologies, such as inverter-controlled spindles and servo systems, to reduce energy consumption and running costs.

Machine Size

Machine size is another important factor to consider when selecting a CNC machine. The size of the bed not only determines the machining range of the machine, but also affects the stability and accuracy of the machine. Larger bed sizes can handle larger workloads and allow for the installation of more tools and fixtures, resulting in more efficient machining. However, larger machines also require more space and infrastructure to support, so factors such as machining needs, site conditions and budget need to be considered when making a selection.


Budget is one of the most important considerations when choosing a CNC machine tool. The price of different models and configurations of machine tools varies greatly, ranging from tens of thousands to millions. Therefore, when choosing a machine tool, you need to develop a budget based on actual needs and uses, and choose the most cost-effective machine tool within the budget. At the same time, also be careful not to just the pursuit of low prices and ignore the performance and quality of the machine tool, otherwise it may bring unnecessary trouble and losses to the subsequent production and processing.
